This knowledge base article relates to the WS Form Laposta add-on. Included with the Agency edition or buy separately for other editions.

The Laposta add-on lets you push new subscribers using an action and create new forms from your lists in a single click on the add form page.

Installation

The Laposta plugin is installed in the same way as installing the WS Form PRO plugin.

  2. Click Settings.
  3. Click the Laposta tab at the top of the page.
  4. Enter your license key.

Creating a Form for Laposta

Automatically

WS Form can create a form for any of our Laposta lists in a single click. This process not only creates a form but also fully configures WS Form so that the form is ready to use immediately.

To create a Laposta form in WS Form:

  1. Click WS Form in the WordPress administration menu.
  2. Click Add New.
  3. Select the Laposta tab at the top of the page.
  4. Click on any of your Laposta lists to create a form.
  5. Wait a few moments while the form is created.

That’s it! Your form will be created and is ready to add to your website.

If your list does not appear, click the refresh icon in the Laposta tab.

Manually

It is also possible to use any form created in WS Form and add an action so that it is submitted to Laposta when a user saves or submits their form.

To add a Laposta action:

  1. When editing your form, click the Actions icon at the top of the page. The Actions sidebar will open on the right-hand side of the page.
  2. Click the Add  icon to add a new action.
  3. Select Add to a Laposta List from the Action pulldown. A series of settings will appear.

As with all sidebars in WS Form, click to the Save button at the bottom to save your changes, or click Cancel to disregard your changes.

The Laposta action settings are as follows:

When Should This Action Run?

You can choose to run the Laposta action when the form is saved, submitted, or both.

Laposta List

Choose the Laposta List you would like contacts to be added to. If you have created a new list since viewing this screen, you can click the refresh icon to retrieve the new list.

Opt-In Field

Use this setting to select which of your fields to act as the opt-in field. We recommend adding a checkbox field with a single checkbox. It is always recommended that you have an unchecked opt-in checkbox on your forms to ensure you comply with GDPR requirements.

Field Mapping

Field mapping tells WS Form which of your form fields relate to the corresponding custom fields in Laposta. For example you would want to map your Email field to the Email field in Laposta.

To map a field:

  1. Click the Add  icon at the bottom right of the field mapping section.
  2. In the left-hand column, select your form field.
  3. In the right-hand column, select the corresponding Laposta field.
  4. Repeat this process for each field on your form.
  5. Click the Save button at the bottom of the sidebar to save your changes.
Custom Mapping

Custom mapping allows you to set a Laposta field to any value you wish, including the use of WS Form variables. For example you might want to map a lead source (e.g. #blog_name) to the source field in CleverReach.

To add a custom mapping:

  1. Click the Add  icon at the bottom right of the field mapping section.
  2. In the left-hand column, enter a value or a WS Form variable.
  3. In the right-hand column, select the corresponding Laposta field.
  4. Repeat this process for each field on your form.
  5. Click the Save button at the bottom of the sidebar to save your changes.

Populate Forms Using Laposta

As well as pushing form data with this add-on, you can also retrieve subscriber data and populate the fields on your form.

This feature is only available if a website visitor is signed in and their WordPress email address matches the email address of a contact in Laposta.

To enable this feature:

  1. Click the Form Settings icon in the top toolbar when editing a form.
  2. Click the Data tab in the sidebar.
  3. Enable the Populate Using Action setting.
  4. Choose Laposta from the Action To Populate From pull-down menu.
  5. Select the list you wish to populate data from in the List To Populate From pull-down menu.
  6. Map the Laposta fields to your form fields.
  7. Click Save at the bottom.

Note that if you created your form using a Laposta template, the field mappings will automatically be created for you.
